What you can expect

Strong intermediate or better skiers with a sense of adventure will love this **Mount Cook** **heli ski** experience from **Wanaka**! Take advantage of being situated on the highest mountain in New Zealand and its inherent altitude to take on some of the world's most challenging and spectacular snowboarding terrain. The Mount Cook region is a huge area filled with vast, heavily covered peaks that provide multiple runs of optimal ski conditions, and you can expect some of the best, unspoilt snow you'll ever come across!

In addition to the ski experience, all the necessary safety equipment is included in the cost of the package as well as a delicious, alpine-style buffet lunch to be enjoyed at midday, and all transfers from your accommodation to the helicopter staging areas and subsequent return are also included - all of which makes for a great value, maximum-convenience package!
